View Full Version : Learn My way around

03-30-2009, 12:18 PM
I read the info. about taking care of yourself. Very good info.:cool3:

I'm still trying to learn my way around the site.:unsure: Still feel like I don't know what to do. I'm new to using computers also.:computer2: I don't know what a lot of things mean!! :newbie:

03-30-2009, 12:31 PM
That's okay, Wrightrs...it's taken all of us awhile to figure it out.

If you don't know what something means, or how to use it, just ask....there always seems to be someone that will lend a hand. We're more than happy to help the newbies.

I see you've figured out the smilies...and which forums to post in. That's a great start.

Have you checked out everything on the blue bar at the top of the page? The one with 'User CP' ... 'Blogs' ... 'FAQ' ... 'Community'... 'Calendar' ...

That's a good place to explore and learn. Don't be afraid to click and see what happens.

Hope you have fun...... :lmao:

Hey no rush take your time and enjoy.

hey wrightrs,

they don't just help newbies. old timers like me seek and get lots of help. it took me days to get back on after they made changes to the forum... i just recently found blogs. and don't even ask me how to post a photo album....mine is empty. so i want to welcome you and tell you that i am glad that you are here, now we can both ask questions.

Hi wrightrs, and welcome! I'm new here too, and still trying to figure everything out. Unfortunately (well, maybe) I keep getting sidetracked by the arcade and don't post on the board as much as I should. But this is a wonderful place with caring people, and I've learned a lot and had a great time already. Give yourself time to explore a while, it will fall into place eventually. At leat that's what I'm hoping! :laugh:

hey you know that is what I want to do to my computer many times a day...it takes me so much time to understand a new thing on my computer.

03-31-2009, 07:39 PM
You're alot BETTER than me Wrightrs! I still cant figure out the smilies!!! LOL Im not very computer literate myself!

hi jeannette,

here is how to get to the smiles:

go to User CP - located on blue bar on left side

click on edit options under "settings and options" (on left side of screen)

scroll down to the bottom of options, the next to the last one,
click on window arrow, and choose "enhanced interface-full WYSIWD'

then click save,

when you go back to a post, you should be able to click on the more button at the bottom of the smiley faces, and the screen of all of the options should pop up.

hope this works, let me know.

Don't worry Wrightrs, you'll get used to how things work on a website like this, and you'll be posting like a pro in no time. I'm a Moderator here, and you can ask me any questions you need to. And, our members here are always happy to help new members get settled in as well. Don't be shy, jump into the conversation anytime you like.

It's so nice to meet so many friendly people that are out to help and support eachother. It's hard to find people like that and I feel truly blessed that I have been able to meet and talk to so many loving people.

04-02-2009, 12:25 PM
Hi Maria! Yes it is hard to find people like that! Sad huh! Im glad you're here! :wavey:

04-18-2009, 01:05 AM
Everybody, thanks for all the nice things you said. I'm just now finding this. It seems like ages ago when I started this thread but is was only about 3 weeks ago. The reason is at the time I didn't know how. Then only I figured out how to start a thread, but did know much about going back and reading them.

All this is so help even now!!!

I'm so touched I'm crying!!!!:cry2::crying5::rolling-crazy::cry4:

04-19-2009, 11:15 AM
WEll Thank You Angel! Ive been told quite the opposite about my voice! LOL Thats the perks of being online and "saying" your singing as opposed to people actually "hearing" you sing! LOL :shocked:
